Q: Are there any requirements before enrolling in Preschool Prep?
A: We suggest a prior enrollment in a Terrific Tots or Mighty Mites class or at minimum, participate independently in a trial class. Then, try out a Preschool Prep session so your child can experience the program and the teacher can get to know the child during this time. Please make sure your child is able to separate easily during drop-off, must be able to age-appropriately communicate their ideas, needs, feelings, and is ready for a group setting with peers. Being able to use the bathroom independently is expected; we will assist if needed though. Wearing a Pull-Up is encouraged during Preschool Prep if the child is in between stages. The student-to-teacher ratio is important for the children so we limit enrollment. Schedule a first-time trial in person or call us at (512) 444-6496. The fee is $25 for one two-hour trial session. When you enroll in Preschool Prep, we'll credit $25 towards your first month's payment (membership+tuition). No free trials.
Q: Do parents stay or leave?
A: Preschool Prep is a drop-off program. We recommend drop-off at 9:10 am so we can begin at 9:15 am. Arrive at 11:10 am to pick up at 11:15 am.
Q: Is this program only offered during the school year?
A: Preschool Prep runs year-round. Join anytime!
Annual gym closure dates on holidays apply (New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, December 24, 25, 26, New Year's Day and camp weeks)
Q: Where will the program take place?
A: Since we also have My Gym classes running at the same time, Preschool Prep begins in the Practice & Play gym for the first hour. We will use the middle room in the Practice & Play gym for our academic, handwriting, science, arts and craft and fine motor skill stations as well as snack time.
Q: Will you use lesson plans?
A: Yes, the Preschool Prep program incorporates structured My Gym class elements and early-education curriculum. Every week, the gym setup will be different as well as the activities planned for Preschool Prep.
Q: Will there be time to play in My Gym?
A: Yes. Before Preschool Prep begins (9:05-9:15 a.m.) and after our stations, the children will have the opportunity to freely explore in the gym. Since unlimited visits to Practice & Play are included in your tuition, you and your child are welcome to stay or come back on a different day to explore the gym.
Q: What does my child need to bring to Preschool Prep?
A: Please bring a spill-proof water bottle and a healthy snack. Label everything with your child's name. Dress in play clothes. Children participate barefoot. We recommend that younger children bring a small bag (clearly labeled with their name) with an extra pair of clothes/diapers/Pull-ups/wipes.
Q: My child has allergies. Can we work together?
A: Absolutely. We'll note the allergies and take precautions. Please write your child's name on the snack and notify the My Gym coach. Play-doh will be used in Preschool Prep, so please notify us if your child needs an alternate brand or bring your own. My Gym is not an official peanut-free facility, but we try to be. Please tell a coach how we can assist your child in having the best experience ever.
Q: Can a different adult pick up my child?
1. Notify a My Gym coach with the adult's name, relationship to the child and phone number.
2. Upon pick-up, a My Gym coach will verify the adult's name with their driver's license as well as obtain their signature on the sign-out sheet.
(Parents are welcome to leave a car seat in the office).
Q: What happens if my child misses a Preschool Prep session?
A: First, please call or text (512) 444-6496 and leave a message or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, the child will be marked absent and will have 14 days to schedule a make-up class. Based on availability, we'll schedule a make-up on a different day of Preschool Prep -or- the child can attend a My Gym class in the big gym. Let's brainstorm to schedule the make-up. Please do not show up unannounced on a different day because we prepare materials for the children on the roster, we monitor attendance due to limited space in the classroom and would like to maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio. No refunds, no store credit and no prorated amounts are issued due to a missed Preschool Prep session.

We are dedicated to your child's success!
